This scaffold inspection checklist form details the areas you need to cover when carrying out a scaffold inspection, and allows a competent person to sign off a scaffold as safe for use.
Scaffolds and other working platforms (including tower scaffolds and MEWPs) used for construction work should be inspection after assembly, after circumstances which are liable to jeopardise the safety of work equipment, and at intervals not exceeding 7 days.
Inspections should only be carried out by a competent person, who can identify the different parts of the scaffold and understand the requirements for a safe scaffold structure. A detailed visual inspection will look for obvious signs of damage or defects to the scaffold and its parts.
The scaffold inspection checklist is designed to help the inspector identify the different parts of the scaffold and the common defects to look for, and give the client a clear itemised report following the inspection. This will provide you with a record that you have complied with the legal requirements to carry out scaffold inspections.
The document is provided in PDF format and can be printed for use on your sites. Once downloaded you are free to save, print and use the construction scaffold inspection checklist form within your business for as long as you need it.
